It is Vaccinium exaristatum Kurz

Myself and Dr. M. SANJAPPA (Former Director of BSI) reported from India as New record, from Gwaltabi of Manipur in 2007 in BNHS, but I collected it in March 2003.
It is common locality wise, not available everywhere of its natural habitat

It is also collected from Mizoram and Nagaland
